Graphics Editor, Opinion (Temporary)

Job Description

The Opinion Graphics team is looking for a Graphics Editor for a temporary assignment of 6-12 months. This team works independently from the newsroom to create visual arguments in all their forms. These are mostly data visualizations created through code, but also include visual essays, tap stories, interactives, static charts, and more.

We report our own pieces, work with columnists, attend editorial board meetings, and partner with op-ed writers to turn ideas into compelling visual arguments. Our work appears on op-ed pages, in Sunday Review, and everyday online.


All members of our team report, code, analyze data, create charts and bring their stories to life through visuals and design. The graphics editor is also responsible for helping the graphics director with day-to-day news coverage and planning. The editor will help edit visuals and stories, give feedback on pitches and offer input to other graphics editors on data visualization and technological approaches.

This is a Guild role.
